About Us

Our Story

We are a local family owned locksmith service. James Portie, a Slidell native, started the business more than 25 years ago. James currently runs the majority of our service calls in St. Tammany Parish and Loni Portie runs the Picayune Lock Jock location. She has over 10 years experience and will do what she can to help you.

James started Lock Jock in 1989 with a desire to improve the locksmith industry. He started off as just as a mobile service, and opened his first store in Slidell in 1991. The Picayune store was opened in 1998 and the Slidell store was shut down 2000. In 2009, we were able to open back up in Slidell as Need Keys located in the Hobby Lobby/Office Depot Shopping Center.

On October 24th 2012, the building we were in caught fire. We suffered significant damage and were temporary shut down again. During all the media attention, it was made clear to us that our name, Need Keys, was not the name that fit us. We began noticing even at our Picayune location, that we were not Lock Jock or Need Keys, but the Key Shoppe.

We still maintain Lock Jock as our service end, but our stores are now known as Key Shoppe. Thank you for giving us the name that fits us best!
